2018 was another successful year for Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and the cause for a double celebration with the Airport’s latest passenger figures showing a milestone in passenger throughput, at the same time as having the UK’s best scheduled flight punctuality record.
Austrian airline Laudamotion is to become the latest airline to operate from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, having today (20th March 2019) announced plans to commence a twice-weekly service from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to Vienna, starting in Winter 2019.

Laudamotion has bases in Vienna, Innsbruck, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Palma and currently only operate to London Stansted in the UK.
This is LJLA’s first scheduled service to Vienna and is the latest new destination to be served direct from the North West’s faster, easier, friendlier airport. It will be the third new airline to be announced in Liverpool during the last 9 months.

Paul Winfield, Director of Aviation Development for LJLA commented, “For Laudamotion to choose Liverpool to be their first UK regional airport to operate from, is a tremendous achievement for the Airport and shows how attractive operating from here is becoming for some of Europe’s top airline’s.
Vienna is another new destination to be served from Liverpool and we expect this to be popular with both the leisure traveller and the region’s business community.”
Andreas Gruber, Managing Director of Laudamotion added, “Our routes work because we have the right offer for price-sensitive customers. In particular, with our new City Shuttle routes, I'm sure to increase the traffic with our new non-stop service to and from Vienna.”
